About the Company
Althea Dance Company is a young contemporary dance company based in New York. The work is a blend of contemporary flow and seamless movement, yet very physical, which mixes floor work with the lines and extensions of the dancers. The Company focuses on international collaboration with artists from different fields such as writers, musicians, painters or visuals artists. Althea Dance also likes to perform in surprising and unusual spaces such as warehouses, artist studios, art galleries or outdoor stages. The company explores new ways of sharing dance with the audience and reaching out to people who may not be used to the contemporary dance scene. So far, Althea Dance Company has performed internationally, mainly in the United States, France and Mexico and is aiming to keep expanding its international voice.
